Telekinetic powers[edit]

At 1st level you learn to use your telekinetic powers. You can manipulate a number of objects at once equal to your Strength Modifier, each of which must weigh less than your Strength Score in pounds. With an action you can throw the object as a range attack. The object deals your telk die + str mod at the range of 80/320. If you’re controlling a shield you gain the bonuses of it. You can only control one shield at a time. You can manipulate objects at a range of 5 feet times your Proficiency Bonus. If an object leaves this range while you are manipulating it, it drops to the ground.


If you're controlling a rope, chain or anything that can be used to restrain someone you can use an action to Trapple someone. You need to hold concentration on the Trapple or it will fail. You cannot use any other Telekinetic powers while concentrating on a Trapple. A Trappled creature’s speed becomes 0, and it can’t benefit from any bonus to its speed. Attack rolls against the creature have advantage, and the creature’s Attack rolls have disadvantage. The creature has disadvantage on Dexterity Saving Throws.

Archetype Feature[edit]

At 2nd level, you choose a school. Choose between Protection, Aim and Control, all detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at 2nd level, and again at 3rd, 6th, 10th, 13th and 17th level

Projectile Deflection[edit]

Starting at 3rd level, you can use your reaction to deflect or catch a projectile when you or an ally within 5 feet of you are hit by a ranged weapon Attack. When you do so, the damage you take from the Attack is reduced by 1d10 + your strength modifier + your telekinesis level. If you reduce the damage to 0, you can catch the projectile if it is small enough for you to hold in one hand and you have at least one hand free. If you catch a projectile in this way, you can spend 1 school token to make a ranged Attack (range 60 feet) with the weapon or piece of Ammunition you just caught, as part of the same reaction. you use your telk die for the attack.

Ability Score Increase[edit]

When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Extra Attack[edit]

Beginning at 5th you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn.

Telekinetic Tempest[edit]

Beginning at level 11 you gain the ability telekinetic tempest: You can spin your manipulated objects in a swirling vortex, hitting out at many foes at once. As an action, expend a Telk Point and make a melee weapon attack against any number of creatures within 10 feet of you, with a separate attack roll for each.
